campaigning in iowa and joe biden in north carolina. but nothing on romney's campaign schedule and president obama is just wrapping up some final debate prep in nevada. in ohio, early voting gets underway today. here's a look at some great video of people camping out to be able to cast their vote at the cuyahoga county board of elections. state senator nina turner was very first and said the long line is symbolic of how important voting is in ohio. cleveland mayor frank jackson also showed up for some moral support. so far 32% of republicans have requested early ballots. and 26% of democrats. and these early votes in ohio could really be symbolic. mitt romney likely will not become president unless he can take ohio. more john fuglesang coming up on the "full court press" after the break. stay with us. you're about to watch an ad message created by a current tv viewer for capella university. matter. >> i work with adults with developmental disabilities. growing up i had a single mother of four and people in the community were
think if joe biden is smart, he's going to use this and use some of governor romney's comments to put paul ryan in the corner. >> eliot: that's absolutely correct if one was trying to be as thoroughly objective as one might be but having lived through the fog of politics, objectivity and fact is in the eye of the beholder and therefore i think establishing what is true and what is fact will be difficult for either side going forward and governor romney certainly took the aggressive posture here. let's talk very quickly demeanor. tim, the president's demeanor many people thought was simply one of defense. he just -- he didn't seem to be the forceful advocate that he has been. do you agree with that? you said you watched it again today. did he strike you as being more affirmatively impressive than he struck us last night? >> well, you know, it sounded worse on the radio. so when i saw it on tv, it wasn't quite so bad. he really did kick it into gear at the end. so i don't think -- this is the first of three de
. the he's going to go for his zingers just like sarah did whatever it is she said about joe biden. i can't remember now. >> it took a team of experts weeks to come up with that. >> he's going to go for his zingers and all of that. all obama has to do is zing him back with i was a severe conservative. really? and you passed obamacare. >> i think the danger the president faces is will he be professorial and talk to long and mitt romney be like the mitt romney that had 75% of republicans opposed to him during the primary race. do you think there is a way that there can be a gotcha moment? >> i would agree with you. honestly again ilk admit became an obama supporter. i agree that i think it's really obama's to lose by coming across at too professorial. here's his numbers versus my numbers. he has to be a bit more down to earth about this is where my policy wants to go, this is where his wants to go. >> you're exactly right mark. i thank you very much for the call. i'm sort of in the minority on this, but i thought he was great about the debates. in spite of the gaffes, you're going to say he
conservatives saying that paul ryan is going to mop the floor with joe biden. forget about it. >> stephanie: look at his speech. ryan's speech at the rnc, john that was just about as thoroughly fact checked -- >> oh my gosh. that speech just got home to his wife last night. >> stephanie: we just said that's where the jump in jobs has happened in fact checkers. >> yes. >> stephanie: john fugelsang remains in the side car. we continue with the remaining moments of fridays with fugelsang on the "stephanie miller show." >> announcer: highbrow low brow unibrow. it's the "stephanie miller show." ♪ (vo) she gets the comedians laughing and the thinkers thinking. >>ok, so there's wiggle room in the ten commandments, that's what you're saying. >>current will let me say anything. (vo) john fugelsang sees what happens. >> you know, blaming this economy on barack obama is kinda like blaming your hangover on the guy making breakfast. i like mitt romney but i'm sorry. they guy has flipped more than a crack house mattress. this campaign has become so toxic, beverly hills housewives ar
second debate, he also has joe biden coming up with paul ryan. this ain't -- you know democrats, progressives don't be worried. [ laughter ] >> cenk: i think the president has run a brilliant campaign up until this moment. and i think they are going to look and see what we saw. the president doesn't respond to the $716 billion taken from medicare, and he doesn't respond. they have got to change course in the next set of debates. >> eliot: two things those sort of tensions came through at every level, and here is why progressives should be worried. the performance tonight from president obama isn't the guy we wanted to elect. we elected somebody who was wrong had vision and capacity to articulate and energize people. he has got to come back as a different person next time. >> cenk: david shuster hah a point of the spin rooms. >> it is a bit interesting and somewhat strange, the romney campaign had their top surrogates in the spin rooms, there was marco rubio, and as soon as the debate was over they started spinning. not a single person from the obama campaign
in denver then he heads to madison wisconsin. joe biden is in iowa and mitt romney is in virginia. but who wants to talk about all of that when what you really want to talk about is the debates. a lot of claims thrown around last night. we're going to do some fact checking for you this morning. but first let's start out with a bit of a recap. of the debate was moderated by mitt romney. oh wait, we mean jim lehrer who i think it is safe to say did worse than expected. the president did not perform up to his usual standards and mitt romney came out swinging taking a very offensive approach against the president as well as jim lehrer, big barned the entire pbs crew. the debate focus around the economy as we knew it would and the candidates traded jabs over tax policies for the middle class. >> romney: under the president's policies middle income americans have been buried. they've been crushed. i will not under any circumstances, raise taxes on middle income families. >> obama: now, five weeks before the election, he
'm just hoping joe biden -- the one thing we know that joe biden will show his teeth. i just hope he rips paul ryan to shreds next week. and he likes that. [ laughter ] >> stephanie: but i think you are right, he has been set up perfectly now to do that. maybe the president felt too constrains by -- whether it's being presidential, not making mistakes, you are right, he has to get some of that scrappy challenger that wayne powell showed. >> right. here is -- romney has had 20 to 25 debates this year and barack obama has not had one for four years, and it was obvious he wasn't used to it. his body language was horrible. the fact he dropped his head, and he looked like a whipped dog to me. >> stephanie: uh-huh. >> but they can adjust this. they can fix it and it's like i said their strategy was, don't lose what we got. and it never works in politics don't lose what we have already got never works. if the other guy is coming at you, and you are just on the defense. it's obvious you are just trying to hang on to what you got. >> stephanie: yeah, the president is pullin
've ever agreed with joe biden. the gdp was revised downward from 1.7% growth to 1.3%. we know that another million one trillion was added to the federal debt in this fiscal year. the trend line is actually continually going down. >> eliot: in isolation, they would be problematic for an incumbent president. when you put them in context of a larger macroeconomy, the public says we understand what you've done. let me ask you this. governor romney's policies seem to be a rehash of what george w. bush wanted to do and did. and people look at it and they say this is old wine in new bottles. it didn't work before. why will it work now? >> i don't think they'll see that. in fact, the reason -- i think people will see that governor romney wants to reduce the tax and regulatory burden on families and small businesses and rather than impose this huge debt on the american people, i think people, the more they learn about this healthcare bill as nancy pelosi said, we have to pass it so we know what's in it. every day there is
